Truviews of newPs for 7070 registry: trimes and half dimes
The original 'plan' was to transition my 7070 into a registry format by having graded my existing coins. As this project has unfolded, I haven't stayed entirely true to that goal. Some coins just didn't make financial sense to slab. Some others aren't going to be the best fit for where the set is going. While there are elements of truth in items 1&2 above for this trio, there is also an element 'these are too nice to pass up and will take the set to a new level' (both in eye appeal IMO, and premium paid ). Will I be able to keep up at this level? Time will tell, but thankfully I've committed to a very long timeline for this set.
PCGS62, just arrived this week from Stacks auction. Yes, it really is all that! Coin from raw set is actually in grading now. It has some super cool clashing and a colorful reverse, but just didn't compare.
PCGS58, super nice reverse. The raw piece in the album was pretty darn nice too. A crack out from a PCGS holder, a bit darker but with nice pronounced color. Maybe a case for maintaining duplicates?
PCGS55, coaxed away from board member @pocketchange. One in the album has much more subtle color and was purchases NGC AU something. Being honest with myself, I probably would have sought out a new piece for this hole, and am exceedingly pleased this one came along!
